We are experts in our field. We are also enthusiasts; highly skilled and experienced craftsmen who manufacture and supply a full range of bespoke and standard scientific and non-scientific borosilicate glassware.
We make beautiful things. Most of the things that we make are also practical. We manufacture specialised scientific glassware for an extremely varied group of enterprises; chemical, petrochemical, nutritional analysis, metallurgy, pharmaceutical, agribusiness, lighting, designers, artists, film studios, museums, research and development labs, restaurants, television shows, displays, government research labs, emissions companies, water companies, the education sector, individuals, pilot plant manufacture, specialist manufacturers, the list is almost endless. Borosilicate glass is used in just so many industries in one form or another and as we specialise in specials it follows that we deal with all.
We also supply standard laboratory glassware (beakers, flasks, microscope slides etc) to whomever has a need. We are not just a distributor selling widgets. We are independent professional glassblowers, free of limiting commercial tie-ups and we know what we are looking at when we examine a scientific glass vessel. We have therefore carefully chosen the products that we hold in stock.

Our manufacturing arm specialises in producing custom product that is designed to order. You provide the drawing, we make it; it’s that simple.

Some of our clients provide fabulous technical drawings. Others rough something out on the back of an envelope. We also provide a fast, efficient repair service for that damaged piece of glass instrumentation that you cannot bare to throw away of a valuable piece of apparatus that it is economical to repair We can accommodate all!
We are pure artisans and we love what we do and we love to please, whatever your requirement may be. Our core business is scientific glassblowing in borosilicate glass. Scientific glassblowing requires the greatest degree of accuracy and technical ability of all the glassblowing disciplines. As we possess the skills for the most demanding scientific work, we are also able to manufacture non-scientific items, and we regularly undertake a number of commissions.
You submit a request, we will tell you if what you want is possible and how much it is likely to cost. No fuss, no nonsense; it’s really that straight forward. With regard to quantity, we manufacture in quantities of one upwards. With regard to flexibility in accommodating your wishes, just ask and we will tell you if we can help or not.
The centre of excellence of our British glassblowing expertise is in London, England. We have a long tradition of precision manufacturing in the United Kingdom, and we are really pleased to continue that tradition.
We hope that you share our enthusiasm.
